With all of these thoughts of Valentine decorations, I started thinking that maybe I should get busy making hearts. I find there are two camps when it comes to heart shaped beads. You either love em', or hate em'. Personally, I adore making them. I love the shape, and I enjoy making them in glass or metal. I'm not so crazy about wearing them, but then again - I don't generally wear jewelry. I should, I know - and in all of my years of running the shop, I was probably the least decorated person there. :-)
What about you? We'd love to hear what you think about hearts - love em', or hate em'?
Here are a few heart shaped beads I've done over the years. My goodness, and this only scratches the surface. Yup, it seems I like hearts!
